San Francisco 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan Provides Update on Charles Omenihu

Clarity has been gained on the playing status of 49ers defensive lineman Charles Omenihu who was arrested on Monday on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic assault.

What looks like a doubtful availability for the NFC championship matchup with the Eagles on Sunday now looks like a guarantee of being active. Kyle Shanahan provided an update on Omenihu at his Wednesday press conference.

“We’re letting the legal process take care of itself, so if he’s healthy he’ll play this week,” said Shanahan. “We’ve looked into it for the last 24 hours. Not necessarily myself, but other people. We feel very good letting the legal process take care of itself and don’t feel we should kick him off the team at this time.”
